Yesterday Pat Shurmur and The Cleveland Browns announced that Peyton Hillis will not play this Sunday when the Browns travel to Cincinnati to play the Bengals. Being Monday and Hillis having a hamstring injury it seems a bit unusual the Browns would already count Hillis out seeing how Hillis still has 6 days to get ready for the game. Shurmur has said a hamstring injury is an individual injury and some guys come back right away and some guys take longer to get back on the field.
I realize the Browns have lost 6 games but there is plenty of football left to be played by the Browns. I can’t help but to wonder if there is more here with the Hillis situation than meets the eye. I mean come on, Hillis has been nursing this hamstring injury for a month now. Is this really keeping Peyton off the field or is there something else taking place here?
Hillis didn’t make any friends in the Cleveland locker room the day he left the Browns Stadium before the Miami game and it was highly published the guys on the team had some sort of intervention with Hillis a couple of weeks later. The real question here has to be are the Cleveland Browns keeping Hillis on the sidelines?
Sure Hillis hurt his hamstring, is it really taking this ling to get his hamstring back into shape in order to get Hillis back on the field? The Cleveland Browns could use the services of the bruising back that runs through people this Sunday. I just don’t understand why they are not getting him back to work. I think Cleveland has seen the last of Hillis as a Cleveland Brown at this point.
Generally this is how you treat a Hamstring injury:
Over-the-counter pain medications such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) and acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) also can be helpful.
After a few days, gently begin to use the injured leg. You should notice a gradual, progressive improvement in your leg’s ability to support your weight and your ability to move without pain.
